  • On Optimism:
    When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.

  • On Knowledge:
    Knowledge is love and light and vision.

  • On Life:
    Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.

  • On Life:
    Life is an exciting business, and most exciting when it is lived for others.

  • On Dignity:

  • On Hope:
    Once I knew only darkness and stillness. My life was without past or future. But a little word from the fingers of another fell into my hand that clutched at emptiness and my heart leaped to the rapture of living.

  • On Unity:
    Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.

  • On Hope:
    Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it.

  • On Optimism:
    Be of good cheer. Do not think of today's failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow. You have set yourself a difficult task, but you will succeed if you persevere; and you will find a joy in overcoming obstacles.

  • On Security:
    Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.

  • On Self Pity:
    Self-pity is our worst enemy and if we yield to it, we can never do anything wise in the world.

    The best and most beautiful thing in life cannot be seen, not touched, but are felt in the heart.

  • On Overcoming Problems:
    The marvelous richness of human experience would lose something of rewarding joy if there were no limitations to overcome. The hilltop hour would not be half so wonderful if there were no dark valleys to traverse.

  • On Vision:
    The most pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight but has no vision.

  • On Attitude:
    To keep our faces toward change, and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate, is strength undefeatable.

  • On Patience:
    Toleration is the greatest gift of mind; it requires the same effort of the brain that it takes to balance oneself on a bicycle.

  • On Happiness:
    True happiness... is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.

  • On Life:
    Believe, when you are most unhappy, that there is something for you to do in the world. So long as you can sweeten another's pain, life is not in vain.

  • On Ability:
    When we do the best we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another.
